We all know the stories of how creative people get into the business of creating for a living, but how did they start using their imaginations in the first place? On the Beginnings podcast, writer and performer Andy Beckerman asks well-known and up-and-coming comedians, musicians, writers and artists about their earliest creative acts and about other formative childhood experiences.

On today's episode I talk to musician Tim Kasher. Originally from Omaha, Nebraska, Tim has been playing music since he was young. One of Tim's first bands, Slowdown Virginia was shortlived though they inspired other bands to form like The Faint and Bright Eyes, and Lumberjack Records, the record label that put out their one album, became Saddle Creek, one of the biggest indie labels around. In 1995, Tim formed Cursive, which in their 20 years together have released numerous EPs and seven albums, including their 2003 breakthrough LP The Ugly Organ. In 2000, Tim started a solo project called The Good Life, though this quickly grew into a full fledged band, leaving Tim to record albums on his own. Those solo works include The Game of Monogamy in 2010 and his latest No Resolutions, which was released earlier this year on 15 Passenger Records, a label Tim formed with some of his Cursive bandmates.
